Re: [EP-tech] Eprints-Elements and the "ę"

You should post the traceback error in the log.

They're in the Author field. When this author has been included for other articles in the past those letters have been omitted.

    Hi John,

    It was mostly trial and error using the pointers you gave me the
    first time I had upload trouble (upload a plain text file with a
    simple filename etc). It let me upload it with me as the author
    which is when I looked towards the "special" characters.

    I've just done another upload on Test straight to EPrints (going
    around Elements and RT1/Crosswalks) including the author with
    special characters. It turns out there's both an "ę" and a "ł" (I
    thought it was an L, but it has a wiggle through the middle). Both
    letters by themselves cause the error (e.g. remove the ę it still
    happens, remove the ł it still happens, remove both and it's fine).

    The upload straight to EPrints didn't work. When I clicked next it
    gave me the error below (not sure how this mailing list handles
    images). When I exchanged the characters for their more typical
    counterparts it went on without issue.


    I'm not an expert, but I suspect now that this may be more a
    server issue than specifically EPrints as I would expect EPrints
    to refuse to save it or give me an EPrints-style warning.

        Hi James,

        If you add a record directly to EPrints, and use the character
        ę in a name (or other field), does it save OK?

        I've just tried on a 3.3.10 install, and it seems to handle
        this without any issues - which might point to the issue being

        Is there anything in the error logs regarding this - or was it
        a trial-and-error approach to find the cause of the problems?

        Hi all,

        We have Elements and EPrints. Recently an article couldn't be
        uploaded to EPrints from Elements. After a fair bit of messing
        around, I've worked out the letter "/ę" /is preventing the
        file upload (I removed the author with this letter and the
        file went on without a problem).

        Unfortunately, this means the problem is with EPrints. Does
        anybody know of a straight-forward way of getting this to work
        without necessarily changing the spelling of the author's name?

        I found this which I think might be my answer, but we're using
        3.3.14 so maybe there is another solution?


        All advice and guidance greatly appreciated as ever!
